So I just got myself a PS3 (I've waited 5 years for one) and I ran into this problem while deciding on which games to buy with a certain budget. Now, I've had a 360 for almost 3 years and have developed a decent sized library. I've decided that I should get a PS3 now due to the recent price cut and the fact that more and more game devs are favouring the PS3 now (Revelations beta comes out on PS3 and PS3 only, Steamworks not on 360 even though there are already people paying for the service for at least 6 years now, one of the cheapest Blu-ray players out there, etc.) So now I am happy that I've got the best of both seventh generation worlds. Now I have come across a problem. Earlier today I went to a game shop to buy some PS3 essentials. Now I only had £30 to shell out and I wanted to get at least 3 games. I went to the shop and I see games ranging from £5 to £25. I didn't wanna shell out for new releases as I prefer getting them later. The problem is I really had a hard time deciding on which games to get. It was either go for the exclusives, go for online games or go for games that my friends have so I can play with them. The problem with choosing online games is that I already have them for the 360. As much as I want to spend my money on something that I already have so I can play with my other friends (AC Brotherhood, Red Dead, NFS), I chose the exclusives instead (Ratchet and Clank, Heavy Rain, inFamous). Now I made this topic because I want to know how you, the people who own a PS3 AND a 360, decide on what platform should you get the game/s for. I really wanna know. I'm really tempted to have a clone of my 360 library because my friends have those games, but it's a really expensive option. I wanna know how you exactly decide if you should get X game for 360 or PS3 (or maybe both). Do you compare features, the online popularity (more people play Rock Band online on 360 than PS3), if your friends have it, etc. Thanks TL;DR - If you get a game, how do you decide if you should get that game for 360 or PS3. What are your deciding factors?
